Defense Against Crime

I’ve Got a Bad Feeling About This

By the pricking of my thumbs, Something wicked this way comes.

One of the constant things that I give as the first line of self defense is to trust your instincts. However, as humans we want to deny that we could be a victim of crime. Denial is a powerful feeling. Too many of us deny a lot of things in our lives – financial issues, health issues, relationship issues, and the list goes on. Denying issues does not solve the issue, and can make them worse. Likewise when we deny our feelings or our gut instincts it can have destructive life changing consequences.

We are a species that is equipped to survive. Think about it, humans can live almost everywhere, in forest, in arctic weather, in desserts, and even in space. We have some  senses that help protect us from danger, if we use them. If a person touches a hot pan, most people will pull their fingers away from it automatically – and you would not even think about denying the impulse to protect your hands. Likewise, our senses can pick up on danger signals in the environment. These are usually signals that we may not be consciously aware of. If you are walking in a dark, Isolated place on campus and a figure is following too close behind you, our instincts warn us to turn around to see what is alerting our sixth sense. Once you see the person you may get an additional signal that something is not right. This situation makes you shiver and you get the thought to Get away – Trust your instincts.

If you have a bad feeling about the situation, go with your gut feeling of danger, don’t ignore, dismiss, or suppress the feeling. Get out and get away.

Identify a safe place to go, go where there are other people, such as a store, or a busy street, perhaps a dorm that is close by.

In out next article we will discuss…safely getting away.
